IMPULSE INT'L, THE
run and hide/arm the girls (2008/DERANGED)
POP-PUNK. From the ashes of DIRT BIKE ANNIE comes the IMPULSE, INT'L. A trio from New Jersey that delivers 2 excellent guitar driven power-pop gems. They mix the guitar hooks of the REAL KIDS with the upbeat tempo of UK power-popers the BUZZCOCKS. Nothing complicated, just really catchy punk!
IMPULSE INT'L, THE
Saturday suzie (2008/MUTANT POP)
POP-PUNK. Here we have the 3rd 7" from NJ's IMPULSE INT'L and it's another power pop gem. As a comparison, the IMPULSE INT'L reminds of PAUL COLLINS BEAT's ROCK N ROLL GIRL which pretty much means they play extremely catchy power pop . Their 1st two singles (on Deranged) received top notch reviews and this is more of the same brilliant sound. An album is now in the works! Limited colored vinyl available.
IN ARM'S REACH
s/t (2004/ANGER MANAGEMENT)
Wie von Anger Management Records nicht anders zu erwarten, kommt auch mit IN ARM'S REACH eine knallige Old School 7'' auf den Markt. Schnell nach vorne gespielte Parts gehen ueber in typische Circlepiteinlagen. Diese werden dann wieder unterbrochen, um danach nochmals richtig abzugehen. Das Ganze wird dominiert von einem Saenger, der so schreit, bzw. kreischt, dass er nach jeder Show komplett heiser sein duerfte. Die Single kommt im schicken Mike Bukowski Artwork und wird jeden AMERICAN NIGHTMARE Fan ueberzeugen.
so steady (2012/TOXIC POP)
POST-HARDCORE. After a demo that took from the melodic hardcore of TEXAS IS THE REASON and LIFETIME, this 7" finds the band digging a little deeper into some of those classic, '90s post-hardcore sounds and gathering influence from additional bands like SILENT MAJORITY, SENSE FIELD, and GAMEFACE. IN BETWEEEN is the next generation of Baltimore, sharing members with PRAISE and SACRED LOVE, and they're ushering it in with style and grace. Vinyl includes a digital download card and is limited to 500 copies.
void of illusion (2012/WORSHIP)
HARDCORE. After a well received demo in 2011 Cologne, Germany's IN CRICLES are stepping their game up with their debut LP "void of illusion". This is heavy, stompig modern hardcore. IN CIRCLES deliver 7 new anthems of angry hardcore with massive singalongs, breakdowns and positive energy, just the way you expected it! Comes in colored vinyl.
IN COLD BLOOD
Suicide kings (2007/A389)
HARDCORE. Featuring both Melnicks of INTEGRITY fame, IN CLOD BLOOD existed both during and after the brothers' time in INTEGRITY, and possessed the same speed, darkness and metallic crunch. This strictly limited full-length LP contains 11 tracks from multiple recording sessions in 1995 and 1998 including a handful (5) of live tracks from a show in Germany.
the nard curse (2009/6131)
HARDCORE. In 1999, IN CONTROL released a demo that caught on in the area and spread like wildfire. This release, along with their debut 7", helped bring a buzz back to the area that once gave the rest of the world bands like RICH KIDS ON LSD and AGRESSION. This full-length LP compiles the original recordings of the much sought after and out of print demo and first 7" (16 tracks in total).
don't know how to break dance (2012/PROFANE EXISTENCE/GET OUTTA TOWN)
HARDCORE. IN DEFENCE is back with more of their unique styled hardcore. With a whole ton of split ep's and 7"s, these dudes finally lay down a full-length to call their own. Blasting raw youth-crew, blended with '80s thrashcore and hardcore, to bring you a catchy blast of original hardcore. Circle-pit friendly dance parts and solid breaks, give this a catchy feel to rage with. This 13 track hardcore romp through circle-pits, stagedives and pure '80s influenced hardcore madness. Comparisons have been made to bands like R.A.M.B.O, and a more anarchist leaning/politically correct version of S.O.D..
into the sewer (2009/LEARNING CURVE)
HARDCORE. IN DEFENCE continue to shred and the 10 song are top notch, fast and furious straight ahead hardcore. IN DEFENCE's 2n LP channels somewhere between RAMBO and MUNICIPAL WASTE's spirited and fun take on hardcore - relentless shouted back up vocals and choruses cranked into a thick straight ahead attack. Really good quality, fast paced incendiary song structure and smoking riffage. Grab this and start learning the choruses for when IN DEFENCE rolls through your town! Vinyl includes a MP3 download card.
party lines and politics (2011/PROFANE EXISTENCE)
HARDCORE. "party lines and politics" features 14 tracks of spastic Ritalin-fueled hardcore from the toxic underbelly of Minneapolis. Caustically sarcastic lyrics spewed over super crushing guitar riffs and relentless machine gun-like percussion. IN DEFENCE have several previous releases out on Learning Curve, Give Praise, Scene Credentials and World Won't Listen Records and have been likened to a cross between MUNICPAL WASTE meets CODE 13.
IN DISGUST / P.L.F.
split (2010/REGURGITATED SEMEN)
POWER-VIOLENCE. The IN DISGUST side feature 11 tracks of violent hardcore grind and ghetto dislocation. Raw like the ugliness of real life. IN DISGUST build it up and barrel through these tracks with a blasting, no bullshit pace, and a heaviness you expect from West-Coast power-violence. On the flipside, P.L.F. unleash 7 tracks of relentless circle pit-inducing grind tracks. Tons of thrash-metal parts and ultra tight stops punctuate the endless killing of this Gulf-Coast grind machine. Top notch recording, and cover art by Daniel Shaw (Insect Warfare, War Master).
IN FIRST PERSON / STORM THE BASTILLE
HARDCORE. This record is an exercise in all that is amazing about passionate hardcore. With a few nods to heavy, mid '90s hardcore, these bands are making music that really matters at a time when hardcore is more watered down than ever before. IN FIRST PERSON feature ex-members of THE ASSISTANT, YOU & I, and WAGE OF SIN, while STORM THE BASTILLE are young newcomers featuring members of STREET SMART CYCLIST and BOY PROBLEMS. This release comes on limited edition pink vinyl while it lasts. If your into stuff like DEADGUY, KISS IT GOODBYE and other '90s classics you should take note!
lunar strain (2010/BACK ON BLACK)
DEATH-METAL. This is the re-issue of IN FLAMES' debut full-length. IN FLAMES are considered to be pioneers and a major influence on the melodic death-metal music genre. Since the band's conception in 1990, they have released 9 studio albums. On "lunar strain" the vocals were sung by Mikael Stanne (DARK TRANQUILITY), who was a session musician for IN FLAMES at the time.

The bonus tracks are actually from IN FLAMES' 1993 promo, which contained alternative mixed versions of the album recordings. This colored DoLP comes on 180gr vinyl.
